LSU women’s basketball’s Angel Reese, Aneesah Morrow named to Wooden Award late-season watchlist

A pair of LSU women’s basketball stars find themselves on the late-season watch list for the Wooden Award, which is given annually to the most outstanding player in both men’s and women’s college basketball.

Angel Reese and Aneesah Morrow grace the list, making LSU one of four programs with multiple players on the watch list. Morrow and Reese rank in the top 10 nationally in double-doubles with 13 and 13, respectively.

Morrow has been an impactful transfer addition this season, ranking in the top 10 in the SEC in scoring, rebounds, field-goal percentage and steals. Reese, meanwhile, leads the nation in 20-point double-doubles despite missing four games earlier in the season.

The Tigers have hit some turbulence in SEC play, dropping three of their last five, but they’ll look to get back on track as they hope to defend their national title come tournament time.
